Lost Valley Bus Schedule

Campus Life is sponsoring busses on a regular schedule from Campus to Lost Valley to help students get outside and enjoy the Maine winter fun.

Busses will leave from the Campus Ave side of Chase Hall at the time indicated. On Saturdays and Sundays there will be both a 12:00 and 1:15 shuttle back to campus, and on Wednesdays the return bus will leave Lost Valley at 8:15.

All students must reserve a spot in advance – you can reserve your spot here.

Lost Valley is beginner friendly ski mountain located only 15 minutes from campus in Auburn Maine. All Bates students ski at NO COST, all you need to do is bring your Bates ID to the ticket counter and you will be able to collect a lift ticket.

The Equipment Room managed by the Bates Outing Club has a limited quantity of ski and snowboard gear available to students to rent free of charge. The E-room is open Mondays and Thursdays from 5:30pm-7:00pm and is located at the loading dock of Chase Hall, on the side of the building closest to Muskie Archives. If the E-room is unable to fill your rental needs, and there is a financial barrier to renting equipment on your own, Campus Life may be able to help.

Students are expected to remain masked and to keep social distance while on the bus and while at the mountain. Further information about Lost Valley’s COVID policies can be found on their website here.
